Misclassifying an individual as an independent contractor instead of an employee can be a costly mistake for nonprofits and businesses. UMass Law School student attorneys will explain state and federal criteria for determining whether a position should be classified as an employee or independent contractor.

Presented by the Legal Center for Nonprofits, Inc., in collaboration with the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth School of Law Community Development Clinic. Free parking is available and breakfast will be served. Doors open at 9:00 am and program begins promptly at 9:15 am.
